The biggest problem is that unless your cinema is equipped with Smell-O-Vision, then the supposedly terrifying stench of the creature is likely to be lost on you, no matter how often the actors screw up their faces and go 'Ewwww!'

The camerawork is polished, the production values high, the audience sufficiently kicked about, and the blood and guts ever-present. All in all, a pretty darn good effort.

Fun horror film, although I wish it would've been gorier. It just had the right feel to be an all out gore fest, and I was disappointed how much they shied… More

It's basically Dead End with serial slasher elements and less tension or atmosphere.
